. sounds riveting. in the guest spot today is dan gross, the columnist and global business editor for "newsweek" daily beast who says in his latest piece republicans still haven't recognized the new reality. dan, you may be right. i don't know. i guess we'll see. if republicans do agree to raise taxes, do you think that democrats will agree to any health care entitlement reform? which is the harder sell? >> no, i don't think so. that's why i'm so pessimistic or actually so optimistic about going over this fiscal cliff. usually when i threaten to write about something every day until it is resolved, it gets resolved quickly. we'll see in this case. >> that's power. >> the election kind of ratified the stance. which is the bush tax cuts should expire for those making over a certain amount. the steps republicans are taking while useful in negotiating. we see the need for more revenues. okay, we understand we need to negotiate and sort of stamp our feet, they're still talking -- they're having two different conversations. they're saying it's okay to have more revenues if it comes from
to show you a tape from dan senor on "morning joe" he's a foreign policy adviser to mitt romney. he took on mitt romney critics piling on the former nominee. let's listen to dan senor. >> tens of thousands of people, you could hear the top ten romney surrogates at the event. i'm backstage with some of them, i won't mention their names but talking about romney like he's reagan. you know, the debate performances were the best debate performance of any republican nominee in presidential history. this guy's iconic. they were talking about him, because they believed he was going to win in four, five days. in fact, some of them were talking about transition to position themselves for romney cabinet. >> first to jump -- >> i won't say who they are. they know who they are. they were on television, the body was -- unbelievable. five, six days later. absolutely eviscerating him. >> there you go, it's calling being two-faced. it has to do -- people at headquarters, they show up at election night, unless the guy or woman loses and they get excited about the guy near election night because they want
the other day. >> i'll tell you would -- go ahead, erin. >> i was going to say let's go back to dan's first comment. dan is a smart guy but that was naive of him to say. look, no one liked mitt romney to begin with. people don't like mitt romney now. he had a good first debate and so people thought, oh, maybe he actually has a chance. but the republican party never liked mitt romney 37 they never felt in love with him. he happened to be the establishment guy who was going to get the job. you look to the 2016 field of republican candidates and a lot of the electorate loves those people. like marco rubio. the electorate loves him. i'm sorry, i think dan was very off on those comments. >> chris, there's something deeper here we haven't talked about -- >> let's start with something simple. let's assume the republican party wants to rebuild and to be a four quarter offense, they want to compete in the northeast, southeast, midwest and the west. let's assume that. are you saying rubio is a better candidate to compete, a good candidate to compete in the northeast? where would he win in the northea
of the top contenders for the job, the u.n. ambassador susan rice. dan lothian's noticed the change in tone. dan's joining us now with more. what's the latest on the successor for hillary clinton, dan? >> reporter: that's right. this is senator, john mccain, who had been working to discredit ambassador rice, had been digging in on this, criticizing her, prompting the president at his news conference to say, if they wanted to go after anyone, they should go after him. now there's a noticeable shift and senator mccain says he's ready to listen. from threat tong block her possible nomination to south korea south korea to a willingness to hear her out, senator john mccain seems to be dialing back his public opposition to ambassador susan rice. >> i think she deserves the ability and the opportunity to explain herself and her position. >> reporter: another vocal critic, senator lindsey graham, is still expressing doubts about her but avoided answering whether he would still stand in the way of a rice nomination. >> when she comes over, if she does, there will be a lot of questions asked after he
they usually do it. >> bill: they may get something done. good morning team. peter ogborn and dan henning. >> good morning. >> bill: phil backert on phones. cyprian bowlding as always on the video cam. good to have you all with us. so mirror, mirror on the wall. who is the sexiest man of all? do we know? >> it is a tough question to answer. i know who the sexiest person in this room is. >> bill's right here. >> bill: so the onion of course, put out a special edition a month or so ago saying that they thought the sexiest man alive was kim jong un. >> row under it. >> bill: the new 2-year-old head of north korea. we knew it was a joke. except the people of korea. they put out their leading newspaper -- >> in china. the chinese communist newspaper -- >> bill: this is great. one of ours has been declared the sexiest person on the planet. neil cavuto yesterday reported that story and then followed up by introducing john mccain to talk about susan rice but they got back and forth on the sexiest man alive. >> b
shows seems to me and to many to be misplaced. >> cnn's dan lothian is at the white house. so, dan, is it even worth -- is it even worth the president nominating susan rice? because there just doesn't seem to be any meeting of the minds about her on the republican side. >> reporter: you're right. i guess it's always possible that the woit house could give up the fight on her but also possible is that if the president believes she is the right person for that position, then i don't think this is something that will move him off of susan rice. but nonetheless, the white house is pushing very hard in defending her, as you pointed out. we should point out again that this is all a hypothetical discussion because the president has not nominated her. nonetheless the white house defend i defending her, saying that she was only acting on information that came from the intelligence community and really that everyone is focused on the wrong thing. what the focus should be on is on what happened in benghazi, who is responsible for it and this those people be brought to justice, carol. >> susan
national election. dan lothian is at the white house right now where that man is about to meet the man who did win the election, the president, and this is of course, dan, not exactly how mitt romney was hoping to walk through the doors of the white house, is it? >> reporter: no, not at all. i mean, i think he would have loved to have had it be the other way around where he is the president inviting former president obama to come here. no, the two will be sitting down here at the white house tomorrow having a private lunch in the private dining room. there will be no press coverage but we hope that perhaps there will abphoto. remember back on election night the president talked about looking forward to sitting down with governor romney to talk about ways to move the country forward. this after a very tough campaign where either during the debates or out there on the campaign trail each of the candidates have had very strong words about each other's vision for the country. the president was asked about when he would be meeting with mitt romney during his news conference following the electi
and now the president and dan lothian from the white house, how is the president handling this? he's probably not doing as much laughing. >> reporter: what you saw today is the president bringing in americans. he says they will be impacted if the middle class tax cuts are not extending. they sent a message out there to republicans saying that they need to come on board and support this effort. republicans pushing back thinking that they don't think the upper income americans should see their taxes go up. what the president said to those who were here and those watching, put pressure on their lawmakers to support pushing out the bush era tax cuts for just middle class americans, not just through this effort but to text, to call, to send a fax, even twitter and the white house coming up with y2k referring to the amount of average middle class families would see their taxes go up by the white house says, $2200. so the pressure coming not only through social media but also the president inviting here to the white house yesterday we saw small business owners, today big ceos. on friday,
was in the clinton administration as an assistant secretary for africa. her policies in africa and suh dan were controversial. there were other issues she's been involved in, but she's got a very big job at the u.n. there are meetings on thursday and a general assembly vote has been scheduled on palestinian stateho statehood. a vote that's gripped the attention of all of the middle east and the middle east experts. and presumably, the u.n. ambassador ought to be someone well regarded around the world and is and now she's fighting for her future life in this very partisan atmosphere in washington. it's puzzling. the white house is sticking by her for now. she's not yet been nominated. harry reid said they believe the committees in charge chaired by john kerry should be in charge of this and not members from other committees like homeland security and intelligence and armed services who are getting involved in this. but as you pointed out, none of the republican senators asking questions chair anything. it's becoming very personal and very puzzling indeed. >> one last sort of puzzling hmt of this
legal in the country. this is about 50 minutes. >> dan has written a wonderful book but it you have not seen the exhibit downstairs, i think he will be impressed with what has been put together in celebration of the prohibition and anti prohibition movement. it is exciting to talk about prohibition for the reason that the election has put the question of anti prohibition before us all over again. in addition to the ballot initiative in colorado and washington, we have medical use approved in massachusetts and two new announcements in rhode island and maine that legislations will take up the question of decriminilization of marijuana for recreational use. the question of the day is one i will offer today which is what lessons can we draw from prohibition for today's issue? >> the first one we know that prohibition was a terrible failure. despite the best of intentions, there were good reasons for prohibition. the efforts did not succeed. the comparison i make is to prostitution. every society since the dawn has tried to outlaw prostitution and no one has succeeded. it is part of a wo
